Red Ribbon Month
The Coalition for a Safe & Drug Free Swain County has been the local coordinator for this national drug awareness campaign. The purpose is to provide education about the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs.
“This project proves to be a positive community wide event for us in the month of October,” said committee chairperson Kaye McConnell. “We estimate that we have reached thousands through our written and visual communications with businesses, churches, schools and others. We hope that the impact of this campaign will result in better awareness of the drug problems here at home.”
